I have an amazing teen daughter who is studying cooking in high school. This semester she has come home with all kinds of cooking ideas, and she even brings home some of the things she cooks. She has always loved to cook and one of her favorite ingredients is cheese. Really, I think that girl would eat anything, even food she hates, if I simply added cheese. I think every day is #cheesefest around my house. Now with her love of cooking, she is always looking for recipes that she can try. One of her favorite resources for finding new recipes is the Kraft Canada website, because we always have Kraft cheeses in the house.
She often looks for recipes that she can do on her own, and, having been born in New Mexico she has a love for everything Mexican. Which is why the Easy Baked Taco Pie is a staple in our house.
Another of her loves is pasta, and another recipe she found easy to make was the Simply Lasagna on the Kraft Website. Make sure you watch the video. This is another cheesy recipe that is in regular rotation in our house.
Another of my teen’s favorite things to make are loaded smashed potatoes . When I make steak she is eager to make these as a side dish. They are heaven for her.
Now when my teen is on her own will sometimes open a box of Kraft Dinner for a meal. Does she have it just as Kraft Dinner? Never; the chef in her comes out and she gets creative. She will often do things like the Double-Cheese and Veggie Macaroni .
Now if you have a teen in the house, hopefully they are like my teen who loves to bake. One of her favorite things to bake is red velvet cake and what goes best with a red velvet cake? If you answered cream cheese frosting, you are correct. You can find a very easy recipe for Red Velvet Cake with Cream Cheese Frosting on the Kraft website.
Getting teens into the kitchen means that they are learning great life skills while having fun and hopefully giving mom a break from the kitchen. If you leave your teen in the kitchen long enough who knows what cheesy creation they might come up with. Trust me, I have had a few unique ones over the years. Remember you can always pick up cheese at a grocery store especially during #Cheesefest. Kraft Cheesefest takes place at Loblaws March 19th – April 9th.
